: : Dear Victoria,
: : Your post confused me. Are we talking about the SAME genre? i.e. historical fiction? Time period: American history, 18th Century?
: : Unless I am terribly mis-informed and am hallucinating due to some kind of a malaria, Last Of the Mohicans, too is Historical Fiction? Around the same time period?

: There's a vast of a difference in novels written in the 1800s and those written for today's market. Although they can both classed as historical novels, they are otherwise not comparable.
Hmm; I would say so, too. While the original LOTM had its inaccuracies and idealizations, etc. a lot of today's historical fiction is ... well, very often, more accurate, more unbiased...
compared to then, that is.
Nonetheless, I am still non-plussed as to V's 'vise.' The floor is still open for reviews/comments/and in particular, encouragements, re. E.W.
There is a historical fiction author among us with a laudable talent, and a good, solid novel which deserves to be completed and then read by all and sundry.
Indeed, the floor is still open re. its posted 2 chapters.
